In Real Words: Language and System in Hegel. University of Toronto Press. pp. 71-84 (2007)

The paper examines how philosophical science and culture (Bildung) participate in the educational project of the modern state. Hegel's view of education as informative of the State is contrasted with Fichte's promotion of the university as an instrument in the self-positing and the absolute pretentions of the (German) nation.
